London: Photoshoot, Artist Interview & Galleries
At the beginning of June I stayed in London for a few days. I had a lot of fun and got involved in a couple of interesting projects and wanted to share a little about what I got up to.
I went up with my partner and we spent the day visiting the museums and galleries. We spent a lot of time in the V&A; my postgrad degree was in Art History and we had a lot of trips to the V&A, so it's quite a familiar place to me. My favourite parts are the sculptures and huge Italian casts.
We also went to the National Gallery, where I saw Van Gogh's A Wheat Field with Cypresses, one of my favourite paintings that inspires a lot of work and always sits on my desk where I see it everyday. Finally seeing it in person was amazing!
The next day I met up with my friend Sam, an animator who wanted to do a photoshoot based on yoga-inspired poses in a natural setting. The shoot was in Holland Park, a lovely part of London that I visited a lot when I worked in the area. It has lovely green spaces, waterfalls and a Japanese garden, so it's a lovely retreat from the hustle of the city. We spent a couple of hours shooting. You can see some of the shots below, and you can find more of Sam’s on Instagram @samsoninanimation.
The next day I filmed an artist interview with Amber Roberts. Amber is an empowerment photographer based in West London, who uses her work to support mental health awareness. I love her work and her cause, and making the video was a lot of fun. It will be up on my Youtube channel as soon as I’ve finished editing. You can find Amber on Instagram at @bluebirdandthorn.
